Summer Kids Clay Program 2024
Indigo Fire is a friendly, well-run pottery studio. Throughout the year, we give students the space, materials and freedom to be creative. This culture informs our summer kids program. Our studio and staff nurture a peaceful, non-judgmental environment. Throughout each week, kids will be challenged by specific projects as well as given plenty of time to pursue whatever ideas are inspired in the moment.
First time in the summer kid's program? Here's what you can expect:
Each week is lead by a head teacher, one to two counselors and often a counselor in training (CIT).
Indigo Fire, and specifically our summer kid's program, promotes a non-judgmental, friendly environment for children to learn, have fun and make new friends.
Kids have access to great materials, teachers and sources of inspiration. Like our year-round classes, the summer program has a strong focus on the pottery wheel, though some kids have more ability and opportunity to be creative at the handbuilding table.
Throughout the week, kids will be presented with many projects, mini games, puzzles and tasks. We always do some tie-dye mid week, and use Friday to glaze the week's creations.
Participants must be 10 years old to enroll.
We don't give exceptions to this based on experience or maturity.
Each week of the program runs Monday-Friday, 9am-3pm.
Lunch (outside whenever possible)
Field games and personal time
The kids are escorted to the Clay Pond park for lunch every day (weather-permitting). This is a valuable time for them to run around and play games.
Per week registration fee: $600
We do not offer multi-child discounts. Cancellations and reschedules are freely available before June 13th, please note that we retain a $35 admin fee in any circumstance. After June 13th, we are able to refund your booking if we can fill the spot. We will ask parents to pick their kids up from the program if they are not engaged by clay and negatively affecting the experience of kids. This is not grounds for any type of refund.
This summer program is most successful when every child has a previously demonstrated interest in art and clay. It's all about clay all day, so in registering your child we will require that you describe their experience with clay.
